20 Nov 09 Practice Before An Interview

If you have an interview coming up, it definitely couldn’t hurt to practice.  In fact, practice before every interview is a good idea, no matter the circumstance.  Through practice you better prepare yourself, increasing your likelihood of getting the job.  Of course you can’t know what questions you’ll be asked beforehand, but you can be ready for anything with a good warm up.

Remember to do your research.  That should be a part of preparation for any interview.  Know the company, what you want from them, and why you want to work there.  Find out about the services they provide, how they apply to your skills and goals.  Those are all very necessary parts of any interview.  Being prepared to talk about them beforehand will keep you calm when the subjects come up in the actual interview.

Study yourself.  You’d be pretty embarrassed if you were asked a question about your resume, and you were unable to answer.  Study that resume, and know it by heart.  Consider why you put the credentials you chose on the resume.  Knowing this beforehand prepares you for any questions you’ll receive regarding your resume during the interview.

Finally, on the day of the actual interview, take time to unwind and calm down beforehand.  You want to be relaxed and confident.  So take out a little time for yourself.  That way you can collect your thoughts, relax, and keep a positive attitude for your road to securing that job.  Stay courteous and professional, and remember your research.  That way, no question will stump you, and you’ll answer all of them to the best of your ability.

By preparing you give yourself the best chance to make a good impression.  During the interview process, a good impression is invaluable.  The best impression you can make will help good credentials stand out, and any shortcomings disappear.
